Baby Boomer Fun: Rick Nelson 1963

Thursday is Baby Boomer Fun Day here, no real estate, so here goes...

Rick Nelson, of course was the son of Ozzie and Harriet. The Nelson's, as the archetypal American family, graced our media in three decades. Rick first appeared on the radio show radio in 1949, and was in the the TV series from 1952 - 1966. But his music........
From 1957 to 1962, Nelson had 30 top 40 hits, more than any other artist at the time, except Elvis Presley (who had 53) and Pat Boone (who had 38). Many of Nelson's early records were double hits with both the A side and the B side hitting the Billboard charts. When Billboard introduced the Hot 100 chart on August 4, 1958, Nelson's single "Poor Little Fool" became the first song ever in the #1 position on that chart.
Rick Nelson died Dec 31, 1985 in a plane crash in Texas while on tour. He was 45 years old.
